Responsible tourism: Mozambique marine conservation with PADI course

Environment

Volunteering on this unique project, you will directly contribute to the marine conservation project and activities of the Marine Megafauna Foundation and work together with its world renowned scientists in the field of the ocean giants - manta rays and whale sharks.

Under the guidance of the world renowned scientists you will participate in integral conservation initiatives and will help make a massive difference in marine conservation within the wider Indian Ocean region.

As a Volunteer with us, you will be exposed to the raw underwater environment and magnificent marine mega fauna, which makes Tofo, Mozambique, one of the most special marine habits on the planet! You will get to work closely with the Marine Biologists from the Marine Mega Fauna Foundation, and we have no doubt that you will walk away from this program with a wealth of knowledge and having contributed immensely to the on-going success and development of marine science in Tofo’s wonderfully biodiverse waters.

Ultimately, volunteers will be involved in all of the Marine Megafauna Foundation’s programmes. This will involve assessing the health of populations of manta rays, whale sharks, marine turtles (including critically endangered leatherbacks), dugongs and even humpback whales (during the winter months).

Community

Throughout your time on this unique conservation project, you will know that your are supporting the local community members of Tofo. Firstly, the accommodation where you will be staying was the first organisation to introduce diving to Tofo.

As Tofo is quite remote and 500km from the nearest large city, there tends to be a lot more local delicious seafood and produce to eat. This in turn helps support the local fisherman and members of the community who rely on tourism to help support them in their livelihoods.

The majority of locals cannot swim and each year hundreds drown along the coastline, as people risk their lives on a daily basis to provide for their families. The organisation we work with also teaches children in the community and engages in a marine outreach program in local schools. The Education program bridges the fragile gap between endangered marine life and the communities that live alongside them.

We also ensure that any teaching activities are following the guidelines of responsible travel. This includes :

Having Qualified teaching applicants taking classes only. Non qualified applicants can assist teachers only.
Accepting long term applicants of 4 weeks minimum
Making DBS checks compulsory
Minimum of a days training on arrival
Having a child protection code
